Abstract

The thermodynamical partition functions for both the Schwinger and Thirring models are evaluated. The imaginary time formalism of quantum field theory at finite temperature and pathintegral methods are used. For the Schwinger model, the partition function displays two features: (i) no physical (transverse) photons exist in 1+1 dimensions; (ii) the theory also describes just free massive bosons. For the Thirring model, the partition function equals that for free massless fermions. The complete thermodynamical propagators and the energies per unit volume at finite temperature are also given.
